Course summary

Learn best practice for effective communication at work across a wide range of cultural groups, and develop your communication skills in more than one language. As one of the first UK universities to offer a course in this field, our staff are at the forefront of this developing discipline.

Course description

If you want to work in an international, multicultural environment and develop advanced intercultural competence and communication skills in more than one language, this course is for you.

You'll create a bespoke course with optional modules within a clear structure that reflects your unique interests and ambitions. You'll have the option to specialise in either Digital Information or Audio Visual Media. We'll help you develop your intercultural knowledge and skills and apply them to your area of interest, whether you have a background in languages, social sciences or science and engineering.

The course combines the study of theory and practice with critical thinking and reflection. We’ll cover the main theories of intercultural communication, including best practice for effective communication at work, which will help you to connect theory with real-life situations.

You'll develop essential skills in ethnographic research and form systematic approaches to complex problems and engage with major intercultural questions and issues relevant to your future profession. Our optional modules give you the chance to focus on your area of interest.
